Lois picspam #3  
More Lois-y awesome...
1. Lois is a dork.
I like dorks. *g* Karaoke at the Talon is pretty darn dorky. *g*
I was going to do a special 'Lois and the girls' day, but I'm too impatient--so I'm using this one now. I love that she and Chloe get on so well--they obviously have a lot of fun hanging out together. Special mention in this photo for Lois's belly--loooooook! she has one! \o/ How cute is that?!


2. Lois is considerate.
Yup, you heard right. I know she can be brash and self-involved and blinkered and ride roughshod over people sometimes, but this myth that she's a total selfish bitch is a ... myth. I know there was a lot of grumbling about Lois taking advantage of the Kents--but I think a lot of teenage girls are a lot more selfish than Lois. Here she's helping Martha clean up after Shelby.


3. Lois has a good heart.
She may have grumbled about Shelby, teased Clark by calling the dog after him, and bitched about her allergies, but she also looked after him--even got all adorably mussed while washing him. And don't dogs have good instincts about people? Shelby loves Lois. *g*


4. Lois makes Lex pause in his tracks.
I love this shot. It's not just Clark who Lois can leave at a loss for words. Though Lex quickly recovers himself. Just as Lois is blind to Clark, Lex has a blindspot where Lois is concerned right now. I think his ego stops him from seeing just how tenacious an enemy she would make. They're similar in a lot of ways, those two and watching them try to out-alpha each other in 'Lucy' was fun.


This shot says a lot about all three characters--Lois is pulling the 'mum' routine on Lucy, Lex is trying to orchestrate the proceedings (even though it's really not his place), and Clark is woobying ineffectually in the background--hee! If anything he looks more worried for Lex than Lois: 'don't go near the scary women, Lex!' Aww, Clark! *pets*


5. Lois makes a good girl-pal.
They could so easily have played up the rivalry betwen Lois and Lana, or at least have them dislike each other. Instead, they showed the two respecting and caring for each other. Lois trying to give relationship advice is always a bit *facepalm*-y, but anvil-y or not, it was very cute to see the future Mrs Kent ask Clark's current girlfriend how she put up with him.


6. She has ambivalent feelings about being 'rescued'.
It is Lois's fate to be rescued. A lot. By Superman, by other Justice Leaguers... there's no avoiding it. But she's no forlorn victim, waiting helplessly for a knight in shining armour. And she's just as likely to rescue the guy herself.




And while she does have a thing for heroes, her logical side fights the crush. While she did end up dating him, she was cutely disconcerted by Aqua's concerned hero routine. She's far more comfortable turning to the girls for support--and Lana's genuinely concerned here.


7. She's a playstation nerd.
This one's just for me. I love it. If I had a day in Smallville, I'd schedule an hour for kicking Lois's ass at Tekken. ;-)


8. Did I mention she's not a victim?
When kidnapped by a sleazy psychopath, Lois definitely held her own.


Here she's about to punch the guy out.


All Clark did was catch a helicopter... Pfft! Details!


Clearly Lois is the real hero here ... ;-) Of course, Lois often winds up thinking she's saved the day when really it's Clark who's done so. Some fans groan about it, but I think it shows off Clark's selflessness and lack of ego--he doesn't do it for the accolades, he does it from the goodness of his heart. And it means Lois escapes the boring 'rescued maiden' stereotype. AND we get to giggle at her and role our eyes with Clark in the process. *g*


9. She puts her own self-consciousness aside in the name of an investigation.
I was going to say she's un-self-conscious, but that's not true. She's clearly awkward on stage in 'Exposed', when she winds up masquerading as a stripper to get a story. But once again, it's a case of Lois on a mission... whatever it takes. Lois was also doing this so Chloe wouldn't have to which is also very Lois-y.


And, um, could she be any hotter?!


I'll save the rest of the Exposed stuff for my 'Lois messes with Clark's sexuality post'.

10. Her absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Damn DC for restricting the number of eps she can be in per season! But one thing it does do is make me look forward to the Lois eps all the more... and maybe the same is true for Clark. After bitching about having to share a house with her, he's surprised into expressing emotion on hearing that she's moving out. Awww, Clark! You secretly miss her too!


Bonus humour pic: I found this one while searching. Remember how Lois teased Oliver about yoga? 'Glorified stretching with chants'?! What is THAT I see in a box she's moving to the Talon?! A yoga mat! Sprung!

EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! She really DOES. She brings out the heterosexual in him!

Another wonderful picspam. You really understand why Lois is such an amazing female character. Screw the haterz!!

I love how at the end of Krypto, Lois is the one washing the dog even though she's the one who's been complaining about him, and Clark's just like...standing there.

Hahaha. Yeah. Oh, Clark!
Carolcarolandtom on June 20th, 2007 08:55 am (UTC)
She's washing the dog because she thinks that would help with her allergy. She does it for her own personal reasons.

Ok, now you have me DYING to see the "Lois messes with Clark's sexuality" picspam. (And I must be way shallow, because that shot of her as a stripper never fails to make me happy). I loved all the galpal shots today, but I have to ask (and this as someone who almost never notices what people are wearing), what the HELL is Lana wearing in #5? *Shudders*

I LOVE the stripper shots! :-) There will be more. *shares the shallow*

what the HELL is Lana wearing in #5? *Shudders*
Heee! No clue. *stares* The wardrobe guys misfired there, didn't they! I recall that as rather a bad phase for Lana fashion-wise.

*heehee* I love that. (I also love that Lois & Clark are inevitable)

Many, many sexy shots of Lois. Your promise of 'Lois messes with Clark's sexuality post' sounds veeery interesting!

Thank you! for the three picspams of Lois' undeniable awesomeness. I've been horribly slacking in the past months when it comes to keeping up with SV. :(

The girl is just absolutely fun, down-to-earth and far too interesting of a personality not to love. And teh pretteh is just a bonus.

SV is a very silly show but it is fun. *g* I'm glad you're enjoying them!

Ha, awesome! I do like that she thinks she's saving herself. Cause she really does try, and she does what she can! Just cause Clark happens to have superpowers, well. :P

Yoga mat, hee.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Lollie yogabop_radar on June 20th, 2007 11:24 pm (UTC)
Hee! I agree. And the thing is in some circumstances Lois does or would save herself--so it's great that she doesn't just wait around for Clark to show up. *g*

Somehow I find it ridiculously cute that Lois may have been bluffing about yoga to Oliver--perhaps she was intimidated by how good he was at it and wanted to play down the fact she'd done it before. She hides her heart behind the teasing.

Thank you so much for the Lois-love. It's a real shot in the arm after so much undeserved and jealous bashing at other places. More people should recognize just how awesome Lois is, instead of mocking and degrading everything she does.

Sorry. I'll stop ranting now.

Oh, don't apologise, I feel the same way! I'm staggered by the way she's slammed by some sectors of fandom.

We'll just have to make our own squee though. *g*
Renee: Lois/Clarkreneec on June 20th, 2007 06:46 pm (UTC)
I love that Lois can take care of herself or at least thinks she can. :) And awww for the Shelby love.

Thanks for all the Lois awesomeness!

I have a lot of fondness for Shelby. *g*
Ferd: Brois manip cepiaferdalump on June 20th, 2007 07:12 pm (UTC)
You deserve Ferd's Fandom Friend of the Week award for showing Lois all this love. It is so disheartening to see her unfairly bashed in Smallville boards and really never given a fair chance by those whose roots were solidly cemented in either Chloe or Lana's side of the fence. Erica Durance is perfect casting personified, and IMHO Lois' characters is the most consistent and interesting/entertaining of the lot. Kudos to you for helping others recoginizing it.

And hee-- for my own Lexis loving reasons I have to say SQUEE at the Lucy shot of Lois' snark stunning Lex. To this day the 'muffin peddler' exchange is one of my faves.

Such great screengrabs and commentary. I eagerly await your next installment. YAY!!! :)

Same!! I wish the show would give us more of them. They're both so much fun and they spark off each other so well.

I'm so glad you're getting a kick out of this! I'm really delighted with how well received it's been. The Lois fans tend to be drowned out in this fandom by the chorus of haters--especially on the boards--but there are more of us out there. Yay!

i have to say . . . thank you for making this!!! This was just aamzing and you remind me of all the reasons I love Lois.

It makes me sad that so many people don't like Lois but I think she's awesome and Erica does a fabulous job as her.

Not only is she gorgeous, but she keeps Clark on his toes. That little speech near the end of Reunion? When Clark was lyk "people keept secrets to protect others" or w/e and she totally didn't fall for it? that was so cute!

she doesn't let clark get away with stuff and all in all, she's just an awesome character. no wonder clark will eventually end up with her! :D

thanks so much for sharing this! and sorry, for the rant. :) can't wait for your lois messes with clark's sexuality post. i'll keep my eye out.

Yes! I love that one! She just cuts through all that bullshit. *g* And Clark's so used to his own rules and moral standards being accepted as the 'right way'--he's flabergasted that someone else can feel differently but not be EVOL! ;-)

I'm glad you're enjoying them--it's lots of fun and I'm loving seeing people sharing the Lois-love, since it often feels it's not very prevalent.

Awww, Lois really is adorkable with the karaoke! She and Chloe have a great relationship: fun, supportive, and quite touching at times.

Brilliant picspams! Keep the Lois-y awesome coming!

Yeah, I love it when we get to see them just hanging out together. It's good to know they're normal girls when they're not chasing Krypto-mutants or whatnot. *g*

Having watched all of S3 of Smallville in 48 hours... Lois is already sounding more appealling (and hotter) than the other female cast members, with the possible exception of Mrs Kent ;)

And as for the picspam... whoa. No wonder Clark gets all tongue-tied. It sounds as if she's got her flaws, but then I've never met a teenager who didn't have flaws - and hers all sound very human.

And did I mention she's hot? You've got to love curvy women - and she strikes me as very attractive for the same reason Kara Thrace is, she looks like a real woman, not some celery-fed stick insect.

And anyone who can confuse Lex is definitely fun :D

WOAH! You did?! Wow, your marathoning skills are amazing. Please tell me you'll borrow the S4 dvds for Lois...

Eee! Martha's awesome. And she and Lois strike up an unlikely friendship--I love their scenes (though they keep cutting them, dammit!).

not some celery-fed stick insect.
Yes, I agree! And hee! Celery is so wrong--it's anti-calories, did you know that? It takes more calories to digest it than you get back from it. That is NOT A FOOD. /celery-rant

She's gorgeous, isn't she!? *g*

Most definitely! *g* Lex needs someone he can really get his snark on with.

I'm having a frakking miserable evening over here, so thanks for making me smile.

I did take a break on Sunday to do the shopping, and did some vidding on Saturday, so it wasn't more than about 3 DVDs back to back at most at any one time...

They have the S4 DVDs down in Blockbuster, but I only got the chance to watch S3 because Ben's staying here at the moment and had it around...

Eee! Martha's awesome. And she and Lois strike up an unlikely friendship--I love their scenes (though they keep cutting them, dammit!).
Martha is definitely awesome :) And I liked the episode where she and Lana managed to defeat their armed kidnappers while her husband was down for the count...

Yes, I agree! And hee! Celery is so wrong--it's anti-calories, did you know that? It takes more calories to digest it than you get back from it. That is NOT A FOOD. /celery-rant
Oh yes, I'm a great believer in the idea that celery should be destroyed on general principle. It tastes like barbed wire, too. Hate the stuff. I kid you not, but the taste of some vegetables (celery and cucumber most of all) is enough to make me beyond queasy... and I can even tell if something I'm eating was prepared on the same board as such things.

She's gorgeous, isn't she!? *g*
Oh yes :)

Most definitely! *g* Lex needs someone he can really get his snark on with.
And who he has less chance of sleeping with than Clark...

It's really bizarre, seeing Lex as Clark's friend. I mean, ignoring the fact that in canon... well, ok, let's ignore canon. Is Lex hereditarily bald, or something? Or does he just shave his head to get better streamlining when swimming? And does he do anything but work out? Surely he can't be taking over the world from a gym...

I'm having a frakking miserable evening over here, so thanks for making me smile.
Anything I can do to help?

Ah, well, maybe one day...

I can even tell if something I'm eating was prepared on the same board as such things.
Wow. That's a level I haven't reached yet, but too much pumpkin (particularly pumpkin soup) makes me queazy as does celery. I used to hate onions when I was little and picked them out of everything obsessively--my poor mother had to cook without them. But I got over it. ;-)

Is Lex hereditarily bald, or something?
Noooo, no the meteor shower did that. (Obviously!) The original one that brought Clark to Earth--Lex got caught in it and it nuked his hair. :D It's also hinted that it made him invulnerable to disease and a fast healer. So, yes, it's possible that he's a krypto-mutant too.

does he do anything but work out? Surely he can't be taking over the world from a gym...
Well officially he's not trying to take over the world yet. ;-) But yeah, he does work out a lot--that's in comics canon too. The implication is that he thinks he's better than Superman because he's actually worked to get his strength. Besides which, he has minions. Very incompetent minions, but minions nonetheless...
